Wow! It’s been one hell of a week! So much content for one girl! Thank God, I have April Vickery! Please welcome her in a huge way to The Wilmywood Daily team! I swear she is my doppelganger!
Speaking of which, as you probably know The Vampire Diaries has spun us a spinoff which I never miss: CW’s The Originals. The “New Orleans” based show that shoots in Atlanta, has welcomed one of our local actresses with open arms. Can we give a HUGE congratulations to MY GIRL, Alexa Yeames, for landing the recurring speaking role!! She will play Abigail on at least 3 episodes! After high school, Alexa attended University of North Carolina School of the Arts. She currently splits her life between Chapel Hill and New York, but she might as well lived here in Wilmywood! She was always here for auditions growing up. Alexa says she’s only got a couple of lines in this Tuesday night’s episode, but I couldn’t be more proud of her! This 20 year-old has got exceptional talent and we really hope we will continue to see her on the big and small screen. Find out if she is a friend or foe to the Originals this Tuesday night on the CW! If you have Time Warner Cable our local Cape Fear CW is 106.
